The limited series was originally set to run on Showtime and has been in the works for nearly two years now, but after the cable network failed to give it a proper series order, the tech giant’s new streaming service acquired the project. The concept for the series stemmed from Gadot and her husband and producing partner Jason Varsano, who will executive produce via their banner Pilot Wave, alongside showrunner Sarah Treem (The Affair), Warren Littlefield (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Katie Robbins (The Last Tycoon).

Austrian-born Hedy Lamarr was a popular actress in the 1940s, starring in such films as Algiers, Boom Town, I Take This Woman, Comrade X, Come Live with Me and Samson and Delilah. However, she is most famous for her work as an inventor. During World War II she helped create a radio guidance system for allied torpedoes that utilized spectrum and frequency. Today, this same technology is used to enable Bluetooth and WiFi. At the age of 85, Lamarr passed away due to a heart disease in 2000.
